A year after their wedding, Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel and supermodel Miranda Kerr welcome their first baby, Hart. Here’s a look inside their whirlwind romance.

Supermodel Miranda Kerr and Snap’s CEO, Evan Spiegel, announced the birth of their first child, a boy, Hart, named after Spiegel’s grandfather.

It’s been an exciting year for the LA power couple.

Last May, the 27-year-old billionaire Spiegel and the Australian model tied the knot, with an early-morning yoga session and an intimate backyard setting.

Kerr and Spiegel started dating over two years ago, and a whirlwind romance followed, which led to their engagement, in 2016.

Here’s how the two powerful stars met and fell in love.


The two met at a dinner for Louis Vuitton in Los Angeles. “We were really good friends for a long time before we started dating,” Kerr told The Sydney Morning Herald.

The first night they met, Harper’s Bazaar editor-in-chief Glenda Bailey said to Kerr, “I bet you two are going to get married.”

In 2007, Kerr was the first Australian to become a Victoria’s Secret Angel and was among the world’s highest-paid models. Now, she’s working on creative projects like her skincare line, Kora Organics.

Kerr, 34, was once married to Orlando Bloom and has a 7-year-old son, Flynn. Spiegel had to wait at least six months to meet him, per Kerr and Bloom’s rules, but “things are going well,” Kerr said. “We’re just a modern family now.”

Spiegel stays busy as the CEO and cofounder of Snap, the parent company of the photo-messaging app Snapchat.


Kerr says Spiegel loves to come home and chill with the family. “He’s 25, but he acts like he’s 50. He’s not out partying,” Kerr once said. “He goes to work in Venice [Beach, in LA]. He comes home. We don’t go out. We’d rather be at home and have dinner, go to bed early.”

In May 2016, the couple went all-in and purchased a 7,100-square-foot house for $12 million in the Brentwood neighborhood of LA.

While their relationship is mostly private, the duo makes some high-profile appearances, like a May 2016 dinner at the White House with then-President Barack Obama.

Mostly, though, the pair loves hanging out together.


In July 2016, Kerr announced their engagement by using Bitmojis — a company Snap bought for $100 million — to show that Spiegel had popped the question. ‘I said yes!!!’ Kerr said in her Instagram post.

I said yes!!! ❤️????❤️????❤️

Despite her use of Instagram — which is owned by Facebook — Kerr says she “cannot STAND Facebook” and has been “appalled” at the features it has copied from Snapchat. “Can they not be innovative?” she said. “Do they have to steal all of my partner’s ideas?”

Snapchat has been undaunted, though. Spiegel took Snap public in March 2017. He got a $505.4 million package thanks to the IPO, making Spiegel the highest-paid CEO in the US.

Kerr was at the New York Stock Exchange to support Spiegel, sending snaps with early Snapchat employees on the trading floor.


In May 2017, Kerr and Spiegel tied the knot at their home in Brentwood, California. The wedding was an “intimate affair” with about 50 guests in attendance, many of whom were “high-profile” or models.

Spiegel is known for being secretive, and that extended to his nuptials, too: Guests were picked up at checkpoints and driven to Spiegel and Kerr’s home in blacked-out limos.

A pianist played “When You Wish Upon a Star” during the cocktail hour, and during the reception, Kerr sang a rendition of Shania Twain’s “You’re Still the One” to Spiegel.

On May 7, the couple welcomed a baby boy named Hart, after Spiegel’s grandfather. “Words cannot explain how happy we are to welcome our beautiful son into our family. Miranda is doing well and Flynn is excited to be a big brother. Thank you for the kinds words and wishes during this very special time,” the couple said in a statement to People Magazine.
